Diego Maradona has successfully undergone surgery for a subdural hematoma, his personal doctor has confirmed.
“This chronic subdural hematoma was successfully evacuated,” said the doctor, Leopoldo Luque, in a statement. “Diego tolerated the surgery very well. He is awake. Everything is fine”, the statement reads.
The football legend was earlier admitted to hospital as a preventive measure due to a low mood, according to his doctor.
